Daddy left us once again. This time Mommy needed somebody to go with her to Maine because she needs to binge eat on lobsters at least once a year.
They left early in the morning. I knew something was up because they made long kissy goodbyes. When the nice neighbor came to let us out and feed us, I thought, they are going to be coming home late. Then Tita Sha came. I knew that Daddy and Mommy are not coming home. At least with Tita Sha, we can play the ‘I give you my paw, you give me something to eat’ game.
Meanwhile it was lobsters galore for my Mommy.
This trip is really just for my Mommy because my Daddy is not that crazy about lobsters. His favorite are clam fritters, and he probably does not need to travel all the way to Maine for that.
In between meals they took the Boothbay Harbor tour of Boothbay.
She is just using her phone to take pictures, so by the time the camera has focused, whatever she is trying to take pictures of is gone.
She was able to take a video of a lobster getting harvested though.
Mommy was also very happy because she got to see her friend in New Hampshire!
Now they are back home. Mommy’s happy, so we are all happy.
You would think we would get breakfast in bed and be served by our humans all day today. Nope, didn’t happen!
But it is a good excuse to show off our cutie pics!
And you are right. Spaghetti doesn’t have a lot of solo pics, because, Why?
How long does a heart wait before it tells itself ‘I done waiting, Ain’t waiting no more”? For me it was probably the fifth day. I gave up. My daddy abandoned me, so I’m going to abandon him. My mom’s services, however inadequate, would have to be accepted as the new reality. Spaghetti and I adapted.
So when Daddy finally came home, I didn’t know how to react. Should I be happy? Should I be angry? I had Abandoned Puppy Syndrome.
Spaghetti, however, because she is a little Daft, was fine.
Mommy is safer to love because she did not leave.
Eventually I gave him a kiss.
Absence makes the heart realize how very spoilt it is.
I really really thought you would come home today. I do not think you have ever been gone this long. I didn’t want to move from under the table. Mommy had to give me a lot of kisses and treats before I finally went with her. I miss your hugs and kisses, the way you play with Spaghetti and me and hold our bone. The garage door opened and I cried because it was not you.
Even Mommy realizes how very spoilt she is. She had thought that she was neat and/or telekinetic – because in the mornings her glasses, her keys and her wallet are all ready for her to take on the kitchen counter. Now she spends half her morning looking for her stuff.
Spaghetti wants your energy in playing with her and of course, your kisses.
Come home soon!
After I got my treat last night, I just wanted to lie down at the upstairs landing and wait for you. Mommy came over and gave me rubs and kisses, then I decided I will go to the room and guard her. First I slept on the bathroom floor, then I moved in between Ate Louise and Kuya Jesse on the low bed. I miss you still.
Mommy thought we needed cheering up this morning so she put fruit loops in our food (she figured the sugar would act as an upper).
For dinner we had pizza for dessert.
We miss you so much but having cousins, and fruit loops, and pizza make it seem ok.
I was really planning to wait for you all night last night. But Mommy got the treats out, and I thought Spaghetti will be lonely eating the treats by herself, so I decided to come up to the bedroom and get my share. The first half of the night I spent on the cold bathroom floor. Then I moved to the low bed with Ate Louise. Spaghetti slept on the high bed with Mommy.
It feels weird that Mommy wakes up early to take us out and feed us. We miss you but we are getting used to her.
We still miss you so very much, we sometimes wait by the garage door for you.
Now I understand why you have been singing “Leaving on a Jetplane” for the past week. I knew this morning was weird when even Mommy got up early. I really really wanted to let you know how much I love you but the smell of Pea Meal Bacon got me confused, I wanted it more than I wanted you.
I felt bad after you left. Especially when Mommy came home by herself.
Mommy told me you weren’t coming, but I couldn’t believe her yet. So I waited by the window.
Fortunately family came so I was distracted a bit.
We are probably going to be ok, but we miss you so much!
Mostly because we lost power in the bedroom and Mommy did a lot of crazy stuff to try to get the power back on. You would have had it fixed in 5 seconds.
Life Lesson: Pea Meal Bacon from Toronto is good, but family is even better.
She has completely ruined my life.
She took my Daddy. But I pretend I don’t care.
But if I make him, Daddy sometimes pays attention to me.
Life Lesson: Sharing is probably as much fun as having your teeth pulled, but sometimes, it’s not bad.
